Jun 9, 2018

On this week's episode of the I Heart Costa Mesa Show, we talk about our first jobs, hiring and firing, local teens, the interview process, mentorship, employment in Costa Mesa, the power of a paycheck and giving back - with Executive Director of Youth Employment Service, Wendy Weeks. Youth Employment Service (YES) is a local non-profit that helps build up our city's teens and young adults with the skills and training they need to land their first jobs. YES needs volunteers to help conduct mock interviews and they also want to connect with local employers and donors, too. So listen in to learn more, then contact YES to get involved and help mentor Costa Mesa's next generation.
